In one of those faux Ye Old English Tea Shoppes serving tidbits as inauthentic as its spelling and typography, Margaret Thatcher briefly shares her thoughts on our current "wobbly" President. 2014-08-19T17:00:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Paul Greenberg

Republicans Seek to “Restore” an Online Gambling Ban that Never Existed

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
Republicans generally oppose federal encroachment on policy matters traditionally left to the states. SO why is Rep. Ted Poe (R-Tex) alone among his GOP House colleagues in opposing a federal online gambling ban that would preempt state laws, reward special interests, and curtail an otherwise lawful pastime enjoyed by many Americans? 2014-08-19T16:51:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Michelle Minton

Big Government Equals Big Beatings

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
The events unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri, represent why every single black American should, without equivocation, reject the big government view of America. Without doubt, the savior of the African American community will not be any government, neither local nor state nor federal, nor will that savior be anyone within that particular government who shares our pigmentation. 2014-08-19T12:30:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Autry J.

Liberals are always touting their anti-war credentials denouncing its toll on human lives. But in Ferguson, there is one war they cant seem to promote enoughrace war. 2014-08-19T11:00:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Ryan Bomberger

Grocery Chain Stands Up to Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Obsession

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
Leftists seem to have a love affair with intimidating businesses into compliance with their utopian vision of a gun-free America. Kroger, however, has decided to reject the Bloomberg-inspired requests to ban guns on their property. I guess they didnt feel like experiencing an uptick in violent crime and robberies. 2014-08-19T01:52:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Michael Schaus

Every Honorable Citizen Must Condemn Partisan Indictment of Rick Perry

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
He had the legal and constitutional right to both threaten to veto the bill and actually veto it. Why in the world would he not do everything in his legal power to prevent authority for that kind of funding to reside in this woman's hands? 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z David Limbaugh

Obama, the Islamic State and Christian Crucifixions (Part 1)

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
Pundits and news agencies have questioned the validity of reports that the Islamic State is beheading children in its conquest of Syria and Iraq. But there is one fact that can't be contested: The Sunni-dominated al-Qaida splinter group is on a war rampage using some of the most heinous and barbaric means to exterminate anyone who opposes it, particularly Christians. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Chuck Norris

Is it Obvious Yet that Robots Cost Human Jobs?

The Ferguson, Missouri police department released convenience store surveillance tape that showed Michael Brown allegedly stealing some cigars minutes before he was shot by a police officer. Aware that the release of this footage might look like posthumous character assassination of the shooting victim, Captain Ronald Johnson of the Ferguson police explained that the tape was released pursuant to freedom of information requests. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Mona Charen

What Have we Accomplished in Iraq?

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
We have been at war with Iraq for 24 years, starting with Operations Desert Shield and Storm in 1990. Shortly after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait that year, the propaganda machine began agitating for a US attack on Iraq. We all remember the appearance before Congress of a young Kuwaiti woman claiming that the Iraqis were ripping Kuwaiti babies from incubators. The woman turned out to be the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US and the story was false, but it was enough to turn US opposition in favor of an attack. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Ron Paul

Heavens, no! Insists Michael McCrum, the "special prosecutor" who procured the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry for alleged misuse of his constitutional power to veto legislation. Why, it wasn't about politics at all! The legal case against Perry, which discombobulates such plans as the governor might have for another presidential bid, is grounded, McCrum says, in "the facts and the law, and nothing else." 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Bill Murchison

Hillary Clinton Not Campaigning Much for her Party in 2014, Unlike Richard Nixon in 1966

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
Just about everyone noticed Hillary Clinton's scathing comments on President Obama's foreign policy in her interview with The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg. But almost no one has noticed where Clinton hasn't been seen. That's on the campaign trail or at fundraisers for Democrats running for the Senate. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Michael Barone

Faulty Ideas About Marriage

Political junkies will remember how former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels was being groomed to run for president in 2012 before he made his foolish statement that the next president should "call a truce on the so-called social issues." Americans do not want a leader who is unable or unwilling to articulate and lead on important social issues. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Phyllis Schlafly

I don't know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television -- and even punishment is being meted out by CNN's showing the home and address of the policeman accused in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Thomas Sowell

Theater of the Absurd in Ferguson, Missouri

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 22:35
It was in a college theater class that I learned about a genre called "Theater of the Absurd." These were plays written mostly by European playwrights between the 1940s and 1960s, as well as a certain style that flowed from their work. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Cal Thomas

Secular Stagnation Is the Unwelcome and Predictable Consequence of Bad Policy and Big Government

I agree that something is wrong with the economy. But I disagree with the Keynesian interpretation that the economys weakness is because of some mysterious malady that requires government intervention. 2014-08-19T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-20T03:35:03Z Daniel J. Mitchell
